Cleveland City Symposium
On Friday, August 3, Emerald Cities Cleveland will be joining labor, developers, contractors, and community members, in a vibrant educational symposium hosted by the City of Cleveland's Office of Equal Opportunity and the Cleveland City Council. The symposium, entitled Community Benefits: Making Development Accountable, will highlight best practices in development projects designed to maximize their value to the community (such as hiring local workers, working with unions, and ensuring the workforce is diverse). The morning session will highlight successful endeavors in other cities, and will be led by ECC board member Kathleen Mulligan of the Partnership for Working Families. The afternoon session will host a "roundtable discussion" of key stakeholders, including ECC's labor and community partners.
